hi, everyone. i'mric bolling. the crew this week wayne rogers, jonatn hoenig, michelle fields and richard fowler. welcome, everybody. we have the lowdown on the "duck dynasty" dustup in a moment. but fst, i know you are tired of hearing it but you have tohear it one more time. >> if you like your healthcare planyou will be able to keep yo healthcare plan. period. >> call the lie of the yer. "washiton post" giving it four big pinocchios. now we see the president taking three of the top ten spots on that pinocio list. michelle, the media love affair is over. what do you think about that? good for taxpayers? >> really good for the taxpayers. now the big government plans that th democrats and obama administration want to pu through are not goi to get through because the democrats run away from obamare, they know it's a liability. we have the mid-term elections
coming up. demoats won't get seats. they're vulnerable with the obamacare fiasco. >> jo, plate effect started it off with the pants on fire. e of the year. president obama earned four pinocchios, also the lie of the year. we have been talking about this for a long time. we predicted this, did we not? >> i don't think there has been any real major change. there are scrutiny on this or hat issue, but tre has been no disagreement from the press or the public on obama's basic fundamental principles. it's the self-scrifice, deference to authority and the distrust of the individuallism. many on the right echo the statement. mike lee saying we're in this together. so until there is a real alternative to the collectivis i don't see med or anyone standing in the way.
>> barbara walters said we thought he would be the messah. we're so let down. but is the media, has the media turned its back on president obama now especially with what i going on with the obamacare failure we're in the midst of? >> i don't think the media was on the president's side to begin with. there is time the media supported him and times they didn't. right now, the fact that a lot of the mainstream media saying we disagree for the president, that's great for him coming to 2014. gives him a chance for restart, reset. push for the immigration reform. push for raising the minimum wage. all things that the americans want get done. what about it, wayne? i am going to pus back. i think the media -- it's not only leaning left. it's far left. espeially though the approval rating continues to slide, they cut him a lot of passes. >> they did. i agree wh jonathan. the terrible part o this, the fundamental part of this, this is not a law. they said it's law. the hse passed it, blessed byhe supreme court. they are making it up as they
go along. thiss outrageous. this is fascist government at its worst. we have a totalitarian president who is -- every now an then he makes up something differently. today he made up another, another part of ts law. this is not law. >> fascist government, really? >> hold o guys. let me do this. the press conference with jay carn, it was addressed. what about the lie of the year, jay? what did the president have to say about ? >> end of the year categorizations like that are always fun, even if they d't jive with the past categorizations of the same statement. we have own and acknowledged whre that roll-t, this fl has not been to standardss we expect andhere there have been problems. >> michelle it's the commander-in-chief. they have him lying -- jay carney sa those end of the year characterizations is fun. >> this issue doesn't just affect the left o the right. this affects everyone. what is happening is rely
awful. i would like to push back on the idethat the media, never on the side of this administration. the media never, ev investigated this president like they should have. they acted like archaeologists digginup anything they cou about obama opponents. now the media is angry because they s the cancellation of the health insurance and see what e presidendid this year. the administration spied on reporters. eyspied on fox news james rosen. now they are upset because the press corps doesn't have access to white house. >> rich can respond. >> not angry enough. the media is not angry enough. they haven'tpicked up on it. >> that is not true. not at all. that i false. we have seen msnbc and other netwo cover the faultiness in theffordable care act over and over and over. >> i wl tell you there are
if you go to media research you find out what is covering obamacare is mostly fox. >> everyone knows that the president lies. the staff admits that. why isn't the right getting traction? they concede the premise we're our other's keeper. that's another thing we hear the folks on the right say. so what if the president lied? he i doinghat is right and moral. the govnment controlled healthre. until they have a alternative, we'rnot our brother's keeper. >> we'll leave it there. coming up, t patriarch of "duck dynasty" getting support from sponsors following the comments. network suspending him. will the free market decide who is right and who is wrong? >> i'm not sure that a&e has to go so far to remove him from the show. they could have issued a statement of what they believe in, if they fe differently than what he said.
dynasty" stay they will stick with bill dpite the controversial comments thi week. the network suspended him and groups that are demanding a&e ops the show. jonathan you say let the free market handle this. go ahead. >> this is the free market at work. phil has every right to say what he said and every right to fire him and sponsors have a right to associate or not associate with him. there is no censorship here, as i believe i heard gernor palin and cruz talk about this. it only comes fromovernment. not from private interaction. i think that phil will probably hurt phil people will dissociate themselves with the remarks. to me, it feels like jimmy the greek part two. >> i'm not sure. there is groundwell of support for phil robertson. the facook page had more than the enroees on obamacare put together. people say vote with your feet. do you think they will vote withour feet? what does it man?
does that mean the "duck dynasty," stuff they sell at wal-mart will go down or it will up an they will vote with their feet by turning the channel to something else oer than a&e? >> at t risk of supporting my friend, he is rht. he has a ght to make the remarks. he can say anything he want to. martin bashear on nbc, they got rid of him and the actor. >> alec baldwin. >> yes, thank you. if theyon't like what you say, they every right to say hey, goodbye. owe you have every right to say this. this is a personal thing if you have a personal interest in your morals, your politics, those are personal to y. >> i have a hunch that a&e
will walk it back quickly. >> i n't think so. here is why. if you talk about capitalism and the brand. a&e's brand is a wholesome, family-friendly brand. comments like that don't air as family friendly. even the networks decide to stay, with "duck dynasty," you have to understand phil is to longer there. he is suspended indefinitely for the horrible comments he made. >> however, they have a few episodes with what theyall in the can t will roll the next season. he is on indeficit spension. i may or may not change before the future episodes air, right? >> absolutely. >> thehave all the episodes that are planned for the next week. they don't mind profiting off of it. ey can decide what they want to do. the free market is responng now, like you mention the facebook page has over a million likes of people saying
to boycott. peoplare not happy with it. they will have to change course. >> all up the screen that shows under armour, a sponsor of theshow. they will stick with phil and "duck dynasty." they say, "we have no plans to change the current relationship, we are only aware of the suation and his comments are not indicative the under armour view." t important point is this the free market. they a distancing from the comments. not a bad idea >> after the canned episodes phils no longer there so they can make the profit and continuto the market without connecting themselves th the disparaging problems of phil. >> if you are an advertiser on "duck dynasty,"do you sy with it or pull your ads? >> i think it's a choice as to
how the company positioned themselves in the marketplace. if you'd yourlf on moral ss, you can't support this. on the other hand, if you don't care and it doesn't have anything to do with it, yes, you could do that. i don't think this is one that should be like that. this is a purely personal choice. as a company you say we don't like it or on the otherhand we are going to support it. >> the advertisers knew what they were getting. it's not as if they woke up and realed that this was what the show was like. people love "duck dynasty" because of whathey say. they say things off the cuff and crazy. >> off the cuff and offensive are two different things, michelle. you know it. >> so a&e makes a decision, right now they suspended phil. the six is made because they -- decision is made because theyay we will get
blow-back from the gay community so we'll do this. however, do you thk they would have expected as much blow-ba as they get from the "duck dynasty" fans? start with you,john. >> i don't know if it's about the blow-back, eric. for me, just like racism or any bigoted ignorance judging people based on nonessentials like who do they love is simply not only -- it's immoral and bad business. in the end i think you will see it reflected. great people are liking phil and pporting him and the advertisers as well. we'll have to see how it turns out. right n a&e doesn't want to be associated with the messages and my sense is oter big advertisers willollow suit. >> maybe i'm not as tuned in as everyonelse. my understanding is phil, his li went in a slide and he found jesus and he was quoting bible verses. do i see this improperly? >> in that comment, y,
absolutely he was inarticulate. but the comment about the african-american was offenve. very offensive to th african-american community. so they are right to want to distance themselveses from that. >> all rig. richard? >> i disagree with the michelle. the comments made about the african-americans and lbgt folks. i's horrible. "du dynasty" has been around for two or three year and a&e has been around for 20 they can protect their brand. >> holiday cheer and leaving huge tips for jesus. how the random acts of kindness are provi
thatand more coming up in ten minutes. stay with us. someone is spreading the wealth along with the holiday cheer this christmas. anonymous customer is leaving ge tips for wters and bar tepidders across the country. putting tips for jesus on the checks. wayne, is that you? [ laughter ] >> private charity does a better job than anybody else. private people go around giving away tngs. this is a great time o the year when people are willing to do that. it's a wonderful thing. >> i won't let you get away with that. you begged us to wear the hat. i lovehis idea. is is fantastic. waiters, waitresses, bar tepiders are some of the hardest working people on the planet. leave a big tip. a couple were $5,000 tips.
who cares? it's christmas be. happy. >> it'smazing. even if you have resources or just a it will to spread the holiday cheer. but this is rumored e anonymous person doing this is the former v.p. of paypl. it's just a rumor. but i don't know if you used paypal before. it's a terrible website. i don't know if he is spreading holiday cheer or asking god for frgiveness or ing us use that terrible website. either way it's good thing. >> my gosh. bury him on "cashin' in." >> richard? >> i love christmas miracles. the other one that comes to mind is west jet in canada which bought everybody on the plane the best christmas wish, which is amazing. i love this stuff. this is great for the holidays. hopefully, thou they are generous they'll pay their fair share of tes. >> get t taxes in there. >> my gosh. >> let's say you are, when you die, you get taxed around 35% of your estate. not a bad way to get rid of
some of this before you go. >> yeah, i mean i hope whoever is giving the large sums of moy is doing it for him or herself. however not for jesus. charity should be all about you. it should be selfish. you should do it with the knowledge you get something out of it. even the knowledge this rson will be so shocd and delighted if they see $1,000 tip on the bill. charity is about self, supporting the organizations you want to support. governntas nothing to do with it. >> i seem to be supporting my bar tepidders in the area around 48th and 6th quite wel. >> yeah. i think it doesn't have toe about self. i think it'sgreat he is doing this for jesus. great thing. i don't see the problem with that. >> it doesn't matter why he is doing it. i disagree with jonathan. it is done out of an act of kindness that you carebout the society in which you live and you say i want to promote
those things, good for this society. ultimate result, that is good for all of us. >> you're not part of society? ofourse you're part of society. you want to promote things that are important to you. >> that's what i just said, jonathan. listen to what i said. i just said that. yes, it's good for society. therefore it's good for everyone. >> all right. we got to leave it there. coul't end a show without wayne scolding jnathan. thanks to michle and richard for joiningus. for joiningus. no silencing thisuck's who you are or what you do arthritis does not discriminate i thought it was an old person's disease, then it happened to me i was diagnosed with arthritis when i was four yearold. i was two

thank you very much. that is it for thecost of freedom block. thank you for joining us. but before we go, the "duck dynasty" story is more than just a culture story. it's a test ofmerica's solve. our fiber, our commitment to the constitution. in fact, this issue is exactly what "cashinin" represents. therefore i support phil robert's first amendment right to share his christian beliefs. our founding fathers james madison specifically made it the point, the firstoint i our bill of rights to protect free spee. that said, i also believe the market shall judge mr. robertson, not any activist group. that means a&e has the right to suspend the duck commander and the views have a right to demand the duck guy cked should. i have faith in the market and it will prevail. "duck dynasty" will fly again with commander phil if a&e is dumb enough to lethem go, i'm sure a smart cable network will take that opportuny.
